The Bible contains several accounts of people who disobeyed God and paid a dear price.
Probably one of the most important stories is that of Moses—the lawgiver.
He preached “Obey the Lord!” day after day, year after year to the children of Israel.
Then we read in Numbers 20, the day came when they needed water.
Moses disobeyed the direction God gave him for providing water, and paid a high price for that disobedience.
God kept him from leading the children of Israel into the Land of Promise.
Something he had been looking forward to for 40 years vanished in that one misstep.
